Clicks need to increase on you tube.

There was not 1 reason in hell not to disclose the cause of the fire in the initial post.

So, a second YT video will be shot explaining the cause of the fire.

A third YT video will be shot explaining the insurance claim and the saga.

A fourth will show the ordering process for the replacement car.

A fifth....

Oh man, so sorry to hear this. Glad you or anyone else was not hurt. Keep us posted on what happened.

So...reading this forum, one would have thought this only happens to Teslas.

Wow. The heat was enough to melt the rims. Glad nobody was hurt. A good reminder for everyone that there manual door openers by the lower door sill in case you lose electrical in an emergency. Share your story when you're ready.

I'm wondering why he didn't explain it in the initial post.
